On November 19th, 2019, DC Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne K. Nadeau held a telephone town hall. On it, we discussed public safety, the Georgia Avenue Equitable Development Project, lead pipe replacement, and more. Listen to the recording below, and please don't hesitate to reach out in the future by going to the 'Contact' page.
On Tuesday, November 5, Councilmember Nadeau was joined by members of the Georgia Avenue, Howard University, and Ward 1 community to honor the career and lifetime achievements of Maybelle Taylor Bennett. The text of the ceremonial resolution is below.
It’s been a difficult year in the District of Columbia when it comes to violence in our communities. As of October 2019, homicides in the past year were up District-wide from 126 to 136 and in Ward 1 from 9 to 14. Thoughts and prayers are nice, but concrete action is what we all need. Creating a safer place for all of our residents requires coordinated efforts between the Council, the Mayor, and all of our agencies with a presence in the community. For my part, I want to keep you updated on what the Council is doing in response.
